Kellyanne Conway, President-elect Donald Trump’s senior adviser, told the nation’s capital Friday that “there’s a new sheriff in town.”

During an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Trump’s former campaign manager said, “I feel like Washington, D.C., will have a shock to its system with President Trump.”

“You’ll know almost immediately that there’s a new sheriff in town in that he plans on maybe upending some of the unconstitutional and job-killing regulations that have been put into place,” Conway said.

Conway said Trump’s first priorities include repealing and replacing Obamacare and instituting regulatory relief and tax reform.

She added that the incoming president wants to heal divisions in the nation:

But at the same time, he really wants to continue the goodwill and benevolence that he’s been shown by President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama and the Bidens in this transition period. We have been very blessed and very happy with the treatment that we’ve received and the help that we’ve received from the president and the first lady and their senior team.

“Donald Trump didn’t divide the country, but he has a wonderful opportunity to heal and unify the country,” she added.

Inauguration Day is also happens to be Conway’s 50th birthday.
